AFKA advances the Forest Kindergarten model through education, advocacy, and collaboration.
We envision a learning community where:
- Forest kindergartens thrive in providing a safe, accessible, and inclusive educational experience;
- Educators are trained in place-based pedagogues that center local cultures and ecologies; and
- Teachers, families, and advocates work together to promote nature-based learning in all early childhood settings.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all seats are filled.
